Matsuotaisha01

Matsuo-taisha Shrine

Founded in 701, this shrine is one of Japan's oldest shrines. It enshrines the deity of water, which sake-brewing families have worshipped since the Muromachi Period (hence the large stacks of sake barrels).

Pure spring water, designated "one of 100 best in Japan", spews from the mouth of the "Kame-no-ido" (turtle well) statue here.
